Greetings! I am Lystra Keever, and I am so glad to have your child in First Grade this year. This is my 30th year of teaching in Transylvania County. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education (K-6) from Mars Hill University and a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from Western Carolina University. In 2001, I earned my National Board Certification.
I have a passion for working with children, creativity, and inspiring students to be their best. Teaching is an important part of my life. I truly love teaching, especially First Grade! I so enjoy six and seven year olds and all the joy they bring to our classroom. I enjoy teaching all subjects and helping students make new discoveries and connections as they learn.
I have two cats…Bootsie and Buckshot. Buckshot is my white “Special Needs” rescue as she is deaf. In my spare time, I ride four wheelers and enjoy spending time at the cabin with my family. I love to thrift shop, collect children’s books, and eat out! I also love sunshine and happiness! I am a Rosman Tiger fan!
My teaching style is a hands-on approach with active learning through the use of centers, reading and writing workshops, and math stations. I make learning fun!
I believe in a strong home and school connection and that by working as a team we will help your child be the best he/she can be in First Grade. I pride myself on instilling a lifelong love of reading and learning in my students. Most of all, I want your child to feel success every day and to love school and learning.
I look forward to our partnership again with you and your child this year. Please contact me here at school at 862-4431 or send an e-mail message if you have any questions or concerns.
